"Easy to use, full MAC, Windows, AND iPhone protection"

October 22, 2009  |  By dejoyf

 |  Version: Intego VirusBarrier X5 10.5.10


Easy to install; runs in background; most important is the full protection it provides for MAC, Windows, AND iPhone viruses. This is important for MAC users who have any type of Windows files or who send emails to Windows users.


Price; UI is OK but could be bit better.


After much research and trial with other programs, this offers most comprehensive and unintrusive protection for the MAC and related transactions with Windows users and iPods/iPhones.

Updated on Oct 26, 2009

There was a slight, but noticeable degradation in system performance when full MAC and Windows virus monitoring is turned on. Still well worth the trade off.

"Fast, reliable, Easy"

October 16, 2009  |  By JPPATOUCH

 |  Version: Intego VirusBarrier X5 10.5.10


This is how a Mac security product should work. it doesn't slow down my mac, scan is fast, interface is nice, have caught 12 viruses and tech support is very very professional and friendly.


none...maybe the price could be lower but for the best product, I agree to pay more


I am surprised that some people are having a hard time with this software, as I have been running it for a few months with no problems at all. It is mostly invisible, running scans when I connect another volume or boot my mac in the morning.

Other Virus protection software I have used has been so bad I abandoned using it, but this one behaves very well and does exactly what it's told. If it starts a scheduled scan and I want to use all the CPU power for another task, I simply close the progress bar window and I get no argument. Other software I have used will not allow me to interrupt or postpone a scan, it will lock up my machine instead, not this one, it does what I say!

I am running it on a mid 07 2.4 MacBook Pro, which has heaps of grunt, so maybe the moaners are using older, less capable hardware.

To the uninformed, be informed, welcome to the real world where millions of Mac-Haters can't wait to shoot the Mac OS down in flames. A recent scan of a friends disabled computer revealed 12 malicious items with root access including, 'OSX/RSPlug.B10!s1', 'OSX/RSPlug.A9!s1', 'OSX/RSPlug.gen7!s1', W32/FraudLoad.vaoa, et-cetera.
